to have this website fixed by november the 30th. very different tone from kathleen sebelius who talked on a conference call from reporters later in the day. she said this website is up and running, open for business and people are enrolling now. a big tone difference here between park and sebelius. maybe a divergence of strategy here in terms of what they're trying to set as expectations for the end of this month. >> or maybe park knows what he's talking about and sebelius doesn't. >> park is the guy -- >> he's on the line. >> he's the guy they've put in charge of this office. he's the one sleeping in his office in the days leading up to the rollout. even republicans give him deference on the technical questions. he's the guy who knows what he's doing. why wasn't he involved earlier on. >> right. like a grownup. eamon, stay with us. hang on. joining us health care experts, bosh lichefsky. and avik roy.

business was an 800 word fact sheet the inherent authority of kathleen sebelius and they will consider the impact of the transitional policy in assessing on whether to extend it beyond 2014. >> i am highly skeptical that they can do this administratively. i don't so in the law to do. that? it is a congressional bill. >> and the past summer the employer delayed the employer man date he can it by providing transitional relief to selected citizens in a law's implementation. but the original obama care law signed in law march 2010 provided for people to cope the plans they had as of that date. it was a rule issued by secretary sebelius that changed the ground rules for which plans was grandfathered in and that little noticed rule is what the president went back on and with every right to do so since it was executive branch rule. >> it was his secretary that created the problems that we have today. she through rule, secretary sebelius did not comply with the statute. >> we'll get more on the president's so- called fix on obama care. is it possible to implement it. joining me is yamy weinste
. >> by the way, kathleen sebelius has testified there is no way a hacker could steal your social security number from this site. meanwhile, issa was denounced for his attacks on the health care law. >> house republicans shut down the entire federal government for three weeks in october. three weeks. shut down the government. they threatened to default on our national debts unless we repealed the affordable care act. now they're attempting to use the congressional oversight process to scare americans away from the website. nobody in this room, nobody in this country believes that republicans want to fix the website. for the past three years the number one priority of congressional republicans has been to bring down this law. and that goal, ladies and gentlemen, has not changed. >> congressman cummings joins us. when you sit with those people like your chairman of that committee, what do you sense is his game plan? is it cheap publicity? or is it actually into scaring so many people from participating in the program that he can help kill the success of obama care? >> i think it's to discourage peo
and hhs secretary kathleen sebelius on april 12 of this year, just days after both became aware of the mackenzie findings, that unfortunately is one incident. there are many more. president obama told americans they could keep their doctors and their insurance if they liked them, at least 37 times, during the presidential campaign. we know those statements are untrue. and raise questions as to whether obamacare could have passed without those presidential untruths and whether we would have been re-elected. president invoked economed exece privilege. president obama said he did not know about irs targets of conservative and tea party groups. nsa spying on world leaders or department of justice snooping on reporters. the obama administration lied to the american people, whether they claimed that a juvenile spt lady to the death of 4 americans in benghazi, but the president implied untruths to u.n. general assembly 14 days after he claimed he knew that benghazi was a terrorist attack. there is no. >>> there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. there are no words that excu
.gov not functional. kathleen sebelius met with some of the so-called navigators in south florida, the website went down. >> this is a disaster. we have asked the american people to behave differently. when was the last time we asked the entire country to do something differently. now doing that it better be right and we clearly know it has not been. my concern is the war of anecdotes going forward. i can't get my old insurance. or i have cancer are so much more intense, than the positive anecdotes. so that's my big concern. the only shot the president has is and people won't be happy with it is what i call a five year narrative. two things will be happening. we'll lower the growth in health care costs which we're starting to see and more people will have insurance. but this is a five, ten year proposition. won't make people happy today. this at this point is only map. >> you can be right. the fundamental problem for him is what happens with democrats in the senate who are up for reelection. we might see in three or four years but that's not fast enough for democrats in the house or senate. the web
. and these regulations that kathleen sebelius had pushed through shortly after obama care became law. hobbling the ability of people to keep their plan, as the president claimed they would. you read it. you saw it. and you went to the senate floor to do what? >> i took a bill to repeal that particular provision so that people would be able to keep their insurance, that they were promised they could keep. this presidential mantra that goes on and on, the democrats believe. and as a result they defeated my repeal amendment. and so we're still stuck at this point with the same thing. >> how many democrats voted in favor of your proposal? >> every one of the democrats voted in favor of it. that puts america at risk and it should put their jobs at risk. >> they voted against your attempt to fix this regulation? >> that is right. my attempt to make what the president was saying come true, he didn't like it. he likes the mantra, the mantra was still on the white house website at 4:00 this afternoon, saying if you like what you have got, you can keep it. and you don't have to do a thing to keep your p
. on kathleen sebelius. what is the republican mission at this point? the website is making progress. it's handling more people, 17,000 people a minute. it's going to get better. obviously, it's better, since the last time there was testimony a week ago. what's the republican mission at this point? >> i think it's to create as much bad news and bad spin around the health care plan as they can to discourage people from going to it. it's sort of the last, you know -- last-ditch fight that they have. what's frustrating is that when you look at the individual states that have made this work, like kentucky, like rhode island, and then you look at these usually kind of states rights senators, and their own states had the chance to do this. they had the chance to make it right. they had the chance to do what rhode island did, and they didn't. they chose not to do it. they chose not to even try. >> they would -- >> so now they're blaming the federal government when they didn't even try to do it. if you're not going to do your job, you have got to be a little bit careful about blaming the people
-election. but senator landrieu, she voted for this law. and they said look at the federal register, kathleen sebelius put all the regulations in place that will actually make all the grandfather laws meaningless, she voted against him. so did all of the others, now, when they come out and say they're shocked, shocked, let me fix it for you. >> it doesn't matter whether they're believed or not. the fact is, they want to do something, they're feeling frustrated, happy people don't tend to call their senators. so it is not surprising the feinstein numbers are 37-18, as james pointed out, the overwhelming majority of the people are going to do better under this law. and the president is trying really hard to fix it and he needs to be given a little bit of time. the party can't panic -- >> that is one thing he doesn't have right now is time. people are about to lose their insurance come january first, if they don't have replacement insurance there is a lot of questions about who will take care of them and their families. coming up, one questionable ad and one angry lawmaker, he is asking did really change
amount of money to a nonprofit. >>> kathleen sebelius said hitting the road, visiting miami for the second time in 32 months. highlighting the store of one miami beach man who was able to buy insurance through the healthcare.gov website. sebelius is vowing to finish the job, while avoiding questions for calls for her to step down. >>> president obama was not at the official ceremony marking the 150th anniversary of the gettysburg address. the white house said there were scheduling conflicts but the president did put out a rather extraordinary handwritten note that reflects the speech to him. the president writes that sometimes he looks at a copy of the address which is in the white house and thinks about the words that give him and the nation confidence that freedom will prevail. it was really interesting to see this written in the president's own hand. long notes and thoughts. >>> president obama will mark another on anniversary today. the assassination of john f. kennedy. the president and harrisburg harrisburg and former present clinton will wrist the second tear where th
. >> kathleen sebelius was at an event when it failed in front of her. >> yeah. this website, the problems keep coming. she was there. somebody said, this is great. it's working. she was smiling. when it didn't work you saw the smile disappear. >> wah-wah. good to see you. >> you, too. >> president obama has taken a credibility hit with statements like if you like your plan, you can keep it, period. my next guest says obama care is the president's katrina or iraq. he defends the comparison. saying that the president has a credibility problem that's similar to the one developed by president george w. bush after his handling of katrina and iraq. ron fornier is a national correspondent. good to see you. people didn't like that comparison. particularly people on the left. saying you have to be crazy. people died after hurricane katrina. they died in the iraq war. how can you compare the failed rollout of obama care to that? >> that's the oldest trick in the book. of course i'm not crises. there is no comparison between iraq and katrina and obama care. there haven't been thousands of deaths with oba
. >> okay. >> kathleen sebelius in front of congress, i'm sorry about the rollout on the web site. i was drunk and smoking crack. >> thing is he's not apologizing for anything. he's saying he's doing a great job. torontans are out of -- they can't get rid of him. no mechanism to get rid of him. >> beyond the amazing spectacle of all this, he says he's not an addict. but if he's having multiple drunken stupers while he's the mayor of this town, a great city by the way, not as if he's some small town mayor. >> churchill was blind drunk for most of the second world war. >> you walk into that house of commons any day of the week, they have a bar attached to the commons. it is not as if -- alcohol has been a lubricant for many political careers. i think toronto has a fantastic image. it had the most boring, tedious. >> i like toronto. it's a great city. >> it is a great city. >> the chamber of commerce doesn't feel that way. they are absolutely freaking out. it's giving them a really bad reputation. >> robert doolittle is a city hall reporter from the toronto star. soon-to-be released boo

are -- >> they stink! >> and kathleen sebelius said the numbers are not reliable, et cetera. i think you're going to get to a point where six the first day is going to just be the tip of the iceberg because by the i'm you get to november 15, they can't be that substantial, otherwise we would have heard them already. >> you're probably right. i think it was in the "washington post" over the weekend where they had this story, they rolled out the story that said essentially behind the scenes for a long time, the president's advisors were saying, okay. should we just say if you like your plan, you can keep your plan or should we add some caveats? it sounds like the political people won the day. let's keep it simple. but now they're going, yeah, we talked about it. we decided just say that. it doesn't affect that many people. >> yeah. this is why this story is probably -- has a lot of legs beyond a few days, even a couple of weeks. obviously it affects so many people, but we're getting these drips of information out from internal memos and internal discussions. and that's one of them. today learning t
. obviously the blame starts at the top with the president and kathleen sebelius. this looks like a systemic breakdown. looks like you just can't point at the people at the very top. there's a lot of people up and down the food chain that failed miserably on this. >> it is systemic. it goes to the heart of the democratic party argument an argument that the government can do a lot of good things really well. if we can't get this right it under mines that entire argument. >> an argument you've said very publicly, in this case you support it. >> do i. >> you want this for personal reasons, not for professional reasons, you want this to work for personal reasons and there are millions of people like that, which makes this all the more, all the more just unbelievable to people who believe that the government can do big things and do it well. >> it's not just a personal thing. i have two older daughters who have been able to take advantage of obama care. but i think any american, whether you're a small government conservative or big government liberal or like most of america you just want governm
for obamacare still being built. >> yeah. >> apparently it's not complete. >> for some reason, kathleen sebelius and the president of the united states made their second deadline by november 30th. the second they said that, i thought, wait. the guy you brought in to fix it says it's worse than we thought! why would you pick out an arbitrary date right after thanksgiving and say, that's when it will be fixed? now nobody thinks that date is going to mean anything. >> it would be optimal. >> right. >> i remember them saying optimal function by the end of november. >> and keep in mind, you got to be signed up by the end of the year. so they figured, we should give people at least a one month opportunity. but now kathleen sebelius says the end of this month, not a deadline. quote, the 30th of november is not a magic go, no-go date. it is a work of constant improvement. what's interesting is she was down in florida yesterday. she was speaking at florida tech college in orlando and it's kind of sad because there she was talking about how it's working. we've had a few problems. she's walking amongst som
